TFN Student Chapters

Student Chapters as of 12122012
The Texas Freedom Network has a number of student chapters on university campuses across the state. Chances are there is one near you! If you are passionate about advocating for quality public education, the separation of church and state or comprehensive sex education, this is the place for you. TFN student chapter rallies and individual members have been featured in media all across the state and nation, including the New York Times and CNN's Anderson Cooper 360.

TFN has been involved in youth activism and campus organizing since 2006 and our youth campaigns have continually expanded.  Each of our chartered student chapters are official student organizations with officers and general membership.  Our student chapters frequently host movie screenings, petition campaigns, guest speakers, issue forums and discussion panel events on their campuses and in their communities.
